Peter Lenz, 13-Year-Old Rider, Killed at Indianapolis MotoGP

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Peter Lenz, a 13-year-old rider at the MotoGP event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend, was killed Sunday when he fell on the course during a warmup lap for the 250 cc support race and was hit by another rider.

Lenz's father reported his son's death on his Facebook page as the AP reported that the county coroner had confirmed the fatality.

"He passed doing what he loved and had his go-fast face on as he pulled onto the track," Lenz's father wrote on his son's Facebook page. "The world lost one of its brightest lights today. God Bless Peter and the other rider involved. #45 is on another road we can only hope to reach. Miss you kiddo."

After falling, the young Vancouver, Wash., rider appeared to be run over by Xavier Zayat of Flushing, N.Y.

Medical workers placed Lenz in a neck brace, put him on a stretcher and appeared to be doing chest compressions. Series officials said Lenz had been transported to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis and that there would be updates on his condition later Sunday.   MORE
